Painting by Gross designed for Book of the Prophet Isaiah (New York: Limited Editions Club, 1979) but not included in that work Gross (1904-1991) was born to a Jewish family in Wolowa, Austrian Galicia. World War I disrupted the family's life. After the war, Gross and his brother went to Budapest, where he attended an art academy, but fled the anti-Semitic Horthy regime. He studied for a short time in Vienna, before emigrating to New York in 1921, where he studied at the Beaus-Arts Institute of Design. Gross is best known as a sculptor, and he created works for schools, public colleges, government buildings, and pavilions at the World's Fair of 1939 in New York. A number of works have been published about him (Renee and Chaim Gross Foundation website, Smithsonian Institution website).
